How to copy Epic link from another ticket on creation

Gabriel Viger June 9, 2021

Hello everyone!

I was wondering how to copy an Epic link from another ticket (dynamically) on creation of another ticket.

My rule is:

  • When: Manual Trigger
  • If: issuetype = story
  • Then: Create task, link task to trigger issue and (this is where I am stuck), copy epic link from the issue where the rule was triggered.

I tried every option possible but when defining the field epic link in the task creation part of the rule, I don't have the option to copy the epic from the trigger rule.

Thanks for your help!

FWIW for anyone coming here with this issue, I had noticed the `Epic Link` field to set the value to, but it lists already existing epics. 

Turns out if you start typing you will find several values `Copy from ...`... including `Copy from trigger issue`.

That's what I needed.
